Franks Tract

It's beginning to feel like spring and today was a gorgeous day for a tour! I guided three clients today from Hennis Marina to Franks Tract today. The water was like glass the entire time we were on the water. We left just as the tide was going out at 9:15 a.m. and paddled against a gentle current the first hour and a half. We paddled about 3 miles through Sand Mound Slough towards Franks Tract until we spotted a nice beach where we could stretch out legs.

We didn't spot too much wildlife today other than Egrets, Blue Heron and a few coots. We also saw a hawk and we heard a seal barking in the distance.

After stretching our legs, we headed northeast into Franks Tract and spoke with some bass fisherman who told us they had caught five black bass so far. Franks Tract was absolutely beautiful with the flat water seemingly going on forever.

After enjoying the scenery, we headed back with low tide in full swing for an effortless paddle home. Overall, we paddled a little over 7 miles in the 3.5 hours we spent on the water. We couldn't have asked for a better day!
